Welcome

Welcome to Nolan Inspection Services.

Buying a home can be one of the most exciting and nerve racking decisions of your lifetime.  The wrong choice can lead to tens of thousands of dollars in unexpected repair costs that could have been avoided by knowing all of the facts before you buy.cover page

Homes can be made to look perfect by staging and covering up defects with paint or new finishes.  This is where a professional inspector can look beyond that and see what is really happening with a house.  There are always very small or sometimes large signs of underlying issues that can help us understand what has happened or is yet to happen to the home.

At Nolan inspection we are here for you when you need to know everything there is to know.  We are flexible and work around your schedule to ensure we have the proper time to go through the home and educate you on the entire system.  We teach you about the home and its features and benefits.  If there are repairs needed; whether minor or major; we can recommend remediation and potential costs that you may incur. Remember, anything can be fixed.

It’s Not Just A House, It’s a Home!!

We make sure that your dream home is a Reality!

The Pre-Sale Inspection

Pre-Inspection Pays:

Listing your home?  Why not have a presale inspection.  Why wait until you  have a potential buyer and then large home buyerfind out that there are deficiencies that may spoil the deal.  Having a presale inspection can identify issues that may hinder a deal going through.  It could also give the other party leverage to barter and try and reduce the price.  The report is yours to do with what you wish, it can even be attached to an online mls listing for public viewing.  When the unknowns are removed the stress goes with it.

Infrared Inspections

Now it is used by professional home inspectors that want to offer more insight and protection for todays educated buyers.  Why not see it all?

Infrared thermal imaging is a picture of temperatures.  It shows us many things by these temperatures differentials.  We can find heat loss, water leaks, missing insulation, electrical overloads, in floor heating, blocked plumbing and many more issues.  It is the electrical thermal imagebest way to locate a wet basement and isolate the true problem.  This type of inspection tool is always available for Nolan Inspection Customers.  The inspection is carried out by a level 1 certified thermographer so that the results can be interpreted by a professional that is trained by a government licensed institution.

Most importantly, we listen to our customer and to what their concerns are.  There is no extra charge for this type of inspection and the added security that it brings.
